Another triple-headlining birthday blues concert!
The North Central Florida Blues Society is throwing a birthday party for Bridget Kelly Band guitarist Tim Fik, and it will be a blues-rock guitar showcase as Mike Zito, Albert Castiglia, the Bridget Kelly Band and Root Redemption will perform.
Mike Zito is one of the most lauded artists in the contemporary blues arena today, with two Blues Music Awards in 2021 alone and numerous awards nominations over the past decade. The St. Louis native first gained prominence for his guitar playing, but it fast became clear that he was a complete artist - singing, playing, songwriting, live performing and even mentoring and producing fellow Blues artists.
Albert Castiglia has developed into one of the more exciting talents to emerge on the Blues scene in a while. A guitar player full of fire, but also showing a considerable songwriting gift, Albert has gained the respect of hardcore Blues addicts and younger Blues-rockers alike. Born in New York City and raised in Miami, Albert learned by playing with Junior Wells, and he continues to grow as a player and performer.
The Bridget Kelly Band is a two-time International Blues Challenge semifinalist. Inspired by classic & electric blues, the Bridget Kelly Band has placed their unique stamp on the Blues-rock genre with high-energy live performances and a hybrid sound that mixes Texas Blues with various Southern Blues traditions. The sultry vocals of singer Bridget Kelly and incendiary lead guitar work of Tim Fik forge a signature sound that combines female urban blues with dynamic riff-driven blues, all held together by a rugged rhythm section. Fik has gained renown for his powerful guitar sound and fiery fretwork, and he has even been called a “magician of the instrument” and a “pinnacle of artistry” in recent reviews, and praised for his tasteful tone, fluidity, and expressiveness.
Root Redemption is a roots-based Blues band that plays Delta and Chicago Blues along with original material that stands easily alongside the standards. Root Redemption’s lineup is Alan Yeatter (vocals, guitar), Gus Olmos (harmonica), Mark Armbrecht (bass), and Rick Wagner (drums). All band members have represented the North Central Florida region in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
